|COMBAT USE: US armed forces|
The service rifle of American armed forces before the war, the latest incarnation of the venerable Springfield, the M-1903A3, remained in service even after the M-1 Garand was adopted. The Marine Corps began the war with the Springfield as their standard-issue rifle, and would not convert to the Garand until well into the war. Based on the Mauser design, the Springfield was an extremely accurate rifle, and in 1943, a version fitted with a 2.5x telescopic sight was issued to snipers as the M-1903A4.
